Found these on eBay. Projector headlights, but the price tag is way up there. I guess they know that they're price gouging due to the fact there is limited choices out there.

I wasn't. Just seeing what was out there in the market. Was actually looking for Focus Electric headlights, but at over $1k for just one... No. lol Might just end up doing a retrofit myself as it'd be much cheaper.

Just got these and they weren't supposed to come with hids but this sure looks like ballasts and relay harness right?



Next question i bought h11 from retrosolutions but these require h7. can i just change bulbs and temp or do i need new ballasts with different temp model bulb?

Also can i run the retro solution h11 bulbs with the included headlight ballasts in my fogs? Thanks everybody this thread is great!

You should be able to just switch bulbs and they will work,I'm curious where did you get these lights they look pretty good and I may be interested.

Thanks for the answer! I found them on ebay. They came from China I contacted them directly sunny hids i think and they gave me a better deal than ebay price Below 600 shipped and came with the relay harness and ballast but no bulbs.
